Elkin wins place in grand final at venue's phase 3.
Craig Elkin has bagged the latest coveted spot in the highly anticipated Maver Match This Final 2012 following a win at Dynamite Baits Makins Fishery this weekend.
With just four qualifying matches remaining before anglers do battle for the possible £100k prize, the Matrix/ Bait-Tech backed rod beat off the competition for the victory, netting 111lb 1oz of carp to beat second place by just shy of 20lb.
Having drawn Avon’s peg 2 on the venue’s phase 3, Craig fished the pole on three lines to find the fish. At 13metres on maggot he caught three fish, before coming shorter to 5meters to net five fish on worm. Later on a move to the margin line with maggot, caster and worm saw a further 11 fish caught for a total of 19 carp for the win.
Fishing Derwent peg 27, second placed Maver/Bait-Tech-backed angler Stephen Winter put in an impressive performance to net 93lb 12oz fishing pellet shallow.
Third place went to Middy/ Bag ‘Em angler Marc Rodger who weighed-in 74lb 2oz from Snake peg 10.
